The Tracer 98 from Armada makes a great ski for the strong skier looking for a very lightweight option for slaying the groomed and ungroomed terrain. Armada's Xrystal Mesh Dampening is made from Innegra Mesh Inserts that smooth out your ride and adding stability without adding any extra weight. The Hybrid Ultra-Lite Core has lightweight wood throughout the entire length of the ski with hardwood under the binding platform that adds rigidity where you need it. EST All-Mountain Rocker improves floatation with an extra grip on the tail as you exit a turn. Armada's Tapertops construction bevels the topsheet over the edges that helps reduce the weight even more. A 1.7mm thick Impact Edge adds some durability to help reduce the damage from rocks when the good runs have low snow coverage. A I-Clip Tail helps keep skins secure if you venture out into the backcountry. If you want a lightweight ski that is capable of charging anywhere the Armada Tracer 98 makes a great choice.
